Many men don’t comprehend the idea of investing in themselves, except in contexts that potentially improve their status.
A bigger/better place to live, clothing, vacations, gym memberships, education that will potentially increase any or all of the 3 p’s.
But when it comes to investing time, energy and money in their own personal growth and development or the well being of their relationships, they often don’t see the value of that. Men tend not to be socialized to value themselves but tend to associate their value based on what they can achieve. This leaves men on an endless path of constantly trying to prove their worth.
Perhaps it’s time to reconsider this orientation!
